Carrie Fisher Wants To Get Leia Right For Episode VII
Jay Cochran - May 29, 2014

According to the BBC, actress Carrie Fisher recently spoke at the Hay Festival in Wales where she said that she wanted to "get Leia right" for the upcoming Episode VII movie which brings her Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill back to a Galaxy Far Far Away...

The 57 year old actress who was only 19 when she was originally cast for the role said she, "I think less British. I looked a little pretentious faking the accent.". She went on to joke and say that she and her fellow actors , "all look a little melted". "It is good to have us all in a room because it's unique. I mean, I don't suppose they have reunions for the Gone With The Wind gang," she continued.

"I think people should be forced to do it 30 years on, classic films that they had, either to make another film or put together an anecdote."

She also mentioned that she would be revisting her classic Princess Leia hairstyle with the two buns on the side of her head.

The film which is being directed by J.J Abrams will star John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow along with the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. Production on the film has begun and it is slated to open in theaters from Disney on December 18, 2015.

Y'know, something's been bugging me about Kylo Ren, and I think Belmont may have alluded to it in his comment... From the very beginning, I found this character to be very interesting, from his aggressive mannerisms in the trailers, to his intriguing lightsaber design. I just felt like he was a cha... read more

I thought one of the big (almost confirmed) rumors was that Han and Leia arent together.   Ah you're right, I seem to remember that too, now that you point that out.  Of course, this was also rumored to be titled "A New Dawn" and Chewbacca was rumored to have a robo who knows... read more

I thought one of the big (almost confirmed) rumors was that Han and Leia arent together.   Because writing sequel material is so much easier when you just crush everything you spent time building up to start from scratch.  Adding a baby/kids is optional.

I'm wondering: Assuming Leia and Han are still together and assuming Leia's a Jedi (as has been implied), does that mean they're throwing out the idea of Jedi can't have romances?   I wouldn't mind that.  I think "no romance" is what made a lot of the prequel Jedi (read:  ALL of the p... read more
